Hi pixelblip, I'm in the process of writing a mode 7 text adventure and I'm looking into the possibility of adding some graphics. The game will have approximately 50 locations so ideally I'd like to add at least a dozen or so teletext images (Oxbridge is my inspiration, the graphics really add a lot to the game's atmosphere) which will cover the top half of the screen with the text below. I'll be using the excellent teletext paint program (TPP) to create the images and I'm hoping that a bit of compression will allow me to squeeze the graphics in (I'll also reduce the location text accordingly which will help). Anyway, as I'm a complete novice when it comes to creating art (and I guess teletext graphics art is a speciality in its own right) do you have any tips you can pass on, both in terms of creating art in general and teletext art (using the TPP) in particular?

Example screen from Oxbridge:

Umm I don't really have any advice really. That screen looks pretty good to me! Just keep going.....
Teletext is so blocky you can't really go wrong with it.
If I had any advice I would say embrace the weirdness and mistakes.....sometimes a glitch is just what you need!
